Vanilla color stabilizer for surfactants body wash

Dear all, I would like to ask you, is there a vanilla color stabilizer for surfactants products? 

Also, are there any substances that help extend the duration of the scent that a body lotion leaves on the skin?

thank you very much in advance for your time.

  • Are you aware how expensive natural vanilla became?

    You may wish to consider using caramel as a colorant.
    It's cheaper, more widely used and more stable
    yet totally natural.
  • I think that Glucam-P20 can help with vanilla, quote me if I am wrong.

    I think what is meant that vanilla (in a fragrance blend) can affect the colour, mostly brownish and how to avoid this?
  • What about taking a few vanilla beans and boiling them and put in to a L of Olive Oil or Sunflower oil, so then you infuse it over a few days. There will be no colour.
    Or you can buy vanilla infused oils quite cheaply with a stunning odour and no colour. Hope this helps

    And there won't be a scent to speak of. At least not when I made a vanilla macerate myself once (in almond oil). The smell was very weak...
    A year ago or so there was a perfumer on this forum, (who unfortunately isn't active here anymore) he wrote that vanilla is one of the most difficult fragrant ingredients regarding discoloration etc.
